In 1942 the Blue Goose, a B-24 bomber, disappeared during a routine test flight from an airbase in Florida. After an intensive search, no trace of the plane or crew was ever found. Thirty years later, the remains of the copilot were discovered on a remote beach in northern Brazil. The pilot's son learns of the discovery and teams up with his father's former commanding officer. They mount an expedition to Brazil and find a Luger pistol that leads them to a Luftwaffe pilot who flew with the Condor Legion during the Spanish Civil War. While he is sympathetic, the former Luftwaffe pilot refuses to cooperate and the investigation reaches a dead end. Years later, the Condor Legion pilot dies in a crash at Tenerife and a bizarre Nazi plot is uncovered.

In possession of a silencer equipped pistol, issued to the U.S. Army Special Operations Command (SOCOM), he leaves Iraq and begins a career as a hit man for a drug cartel. After Ahmed threatens the cartel's accountant, he realizes his mistake and bugs out before he feels the cartel's wrath. When he arrives in Pakistan, Ahmed joins al-Qaeda—this is the story of SOCOM's hunt for Captain Ahmed Al-Zawiri.
Flight to Dungavel begins in 1918 when an infantry sergeant saves the life of a lieutenant whose Spad crashes in no-man's-land. After the war and throughout the twenties the two ex-soldiers construct a bootlegging empire. To avoid charges of income tax evasion, and account for their illegal income, the miscreants finance two British engineers who claim to have discovered diamonds in British Guiana. Thinking the venture is sure to fail, they 'cook' the books to show income from the mine. In 1933, one step ahead of an arrest warrant they are forced to flee the country. In British Guiana they are surprised to find the mine is modestly successful. As they cannot return to the States until the statute of limitations expires, they take an active role in the mine. They buy a British Avro, hack an airfield out of the jungle, and fly supplies to and from the mine. In 1934, the mine produces an enormous cache of diamonds. The ten kilogram sack of diamonds is strapped into the front seat of the biplane. While airborne, the pilot passes out from the sting of a Veinticuatro ant. After he regains consciousness, he is off course and nearly out of fuel. The Avro crashes in an unexplored corner of Guiana populated by aborigines who have never seen a white man. In 1940, Hitler learns that diamonds were aboard the aircraft and orders the SS to recover them. Churchill learns of the plan and the plot continues...
In 1945 after Germany surrendered Berlin was divided into British, French and American occupation zones (West Berlin) and a Soviet zone (East Berlin). For years West Berlin, surrounded by the Russian zone, was a simmering Cold War issue. From June 1948 until May 1949 West Berlin was blockaded by the Soviet Union. All rail, waterway and road traffic was cut off by the Russians. The Berlin Airlift by Great Britain and the United States was West Berlin's lifeline.In 1949, after a Berlin Airlift crew returns to the States an explosion rips the right wing of their C-54 open over an unexplored area of Brazil. Only two of the five-man crew survive. The information is closely held---only President Truman and a select few know the cause of the crash. On national security grounds, the information is classified 'Top Secret' and sealed for fifty years. After spending a year in the jungle with aborigines both surviving crewmembers reach Cayenne, French Guiana. Neither crewman has any idea what caused the explosion that forced them down. Through the years, the engineer blames the death of his crewmembers on something he did or didn "t do that he should have. After living with guilt for forty-five years he sets out to discover the truth and a bizarre plot is uncovered.
The Czar's Last Soldier is the story of the search for the Star of Golconda a 42.5-carat diamond slightly smaller than the Hope diamond. Before he was killed, a marine buried the diamond in his foxhole on the island of Corregidor during World War II. Thirty-two years later, at a Nebraska post office, Sam Gibbons and Roscoe Barnes are removing the old post office boxes and replacing them with new ones. Both men are World War II veterans who teamed up as general contractors after the war. When the old post office boxes are removed a letter hidden between warped boards falls to the floor. The letter, dated 1942, is from the marine who died on Corregidor and gives the particulars of a jewel theft he committed at the Shanghai Officer's Club in 1941. As there are no members of the marine's family still alive, they read the letter. Shortly after the theft, the marine's regiment was transferred from China to the Philippines. After the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, the regiment was tasked to defend Corregidor. When the order to surrender was given, not wanting the Japanese to gloom onto the stolen jewels, the marine buried them. Sam and Roscoe hunt for the jewels but are unaware they were stolen from a czarist officer and are thrust into the middle of an international legal battle.
There was no name on the C-46 but the ground and flight crews who flew the Hump called her the Betty G. The airplane was identified by a painting of a scantily clad female on the left side of the nose. In 1944 the Betty G encountered severe turbulence and crashed into the side of a mountain. The wreckage was located in an uncharted area and attempts to reach the site were futile. Rumors circulated that gold coins for Chiang Kai-shek's payroll were aboard the Betty G.Fifty years later, faced with exorbitant taxes from inheriting the family business the young owner is unable to raise the money. Desperate and unwilling to sell the business and having heard about the Betty G from his father, he obtains satellite photographs and pinpoints the location of the aircraft. With help from his congressman, he receives permission from the Indian government to search for World War II artifacts and sets out to search for the Betty G's gold.
In 1981 the hostages in Iran had been released, the Russians were the bad guys, Reagan was the commander and chief, and the DM to Dollar exchange rate was peaking at an all time high since World War II. The free world was in turmoil, and needed someone to secure it. At least according to the Lieutenant. Spicher Air Force Base was located in a rural section of Central Germany known as the Eiffel Mountains. It was up to Sergeant Anthony Harris and the rest of the USAF Security Policemen assigned to the 44th Squadron, Delta Flight to make sure that the world stayed free, or that at least their small corner of it did. "Gentlemen, war is hell, even in peacetime." The Lieutenant had actually once said that to the flight during guardmount, and he meant it.

Book Description Since the beginning of mankind, there have always been individuals who start life with disadvantages but by sighting their Aim High above mediocrity they have accomplished great things! I chose the title Aim High for this book as an analogy to impress upon the readers that regardless of their beginnings by sighting their Aim High they can go on to be the best that they can be at whatever they want. The key to success is first to develop a desire for something. What do you want out of life? Once a desire is instilled within, motivation follows, and then you must write out a well thought out plan of action on how to do what you want to achieve then you must follow through with action. I believe we all have a purpose in life. The hard part is to find out what that something is. What is your purpose? The soul that has not established aim loses itself. Montaigne (15331592) In the book Aim High I have done my best to present in sixteen steps guidance and stimulus for success. Success does not happen immediately. Achieving success happens by having a series of successes. The first successes are small, but as you move up one step at a time, you will move up to accomplish higher and higher achievements. Aim High is a self-help book about self- improvement. I have written the sixteen-step aim high path to personal achievementstudy guide in a way that I hope will help all who read it improve the quality of their lives. We go through life making choices. We have the capacity to direct our destiny by the choices we make In the Aim High book I have presented sixteen points I call steps: Effort, Example, Enthusiasm, Spiritual, Physical, Personal, Encouragement, Personality, Financial, Career, Looks, Speak, Purpose, Plan, Belief, Action. These sixteen points provide guidance and serve as a stimulus for success through self-motivation. It is the awaking of the inner self to the potential that can be realized. In order to reach your highest and fullest potential, you must first have the courage to think, to imagine, to dream. Dream! What do you want for yourself out of life? What do you desire? The definition of desire in (thesaurus) is synonyms with hunger, craving, longing, and yearning. Desire will stoke your self-motivation to do! Your first priority is to decide and establish what you desire as your goal. Goal setting is the single most important ingredient in self-motivation that leads to achieving success. Your next priority is to write out a specific plan of action about how you are going to achieve your goal, and you should know why you want you desire it. Then go after your goal with passion, a burning desire within you. To do it! My grandson Ryan invited me to go to the movie, The Empire Strikes Back. I was impressed with what the Jedi teacher teaches his student about engaging the force that is the greatest power in the universe. He tells his student that there is no try, that there is either do or not do. Another important ingredient necessary to achieve success is self-confidence. Self-confidence is a by- product of preparation, and in order to succeed you must discipline yourself to establish the habit of doing what need to be done. Now, not tomorrow! Affirm to yourself, I have faith and belief in myself that I will achieve my goal because I expect to achieve it, because I will work hard to do so, and that no matter what the circumstances, I will never give up. Action is what produces results! Do Power! The thrust of Aim High is to implant the sixteen steps outlined in this book into your mind as seeds necessary for success. We are all born with a powerful toolour brain, and it is up to each and every one of us to learn how to use that powerful tool more efficiently and effectively. On the cover of Aim High, there is a red dot in the center. That dot represents you, and you are your own bulls-eye! To try to hit right in the center of the bulls-ey
